DZ's mother (Ilse) had two sisters and two brothers.

The Peltzer sisters were close. They got married and ended up raising their families in San Francisco and Palo Alto.

They each had boys.
Over the years, the families would get together often...for holidays, for birthdays, and for Sunday dinner. Since they passed on ... we still get together...just not as often.
On Sunday, four cousins came to our house.

To add some zing to the festivities, I picked up some flowers from the farmers market and put together these centerpieces:

But most important of all was being together as family.
